Nissan has No Plans of Slowing Down EV Battery Production

Friday, September 26th, 2014


Nissan has spoken out in regards to the recent speculations which claim that they intend to slow down electric-vehicle battery production. Contrary to recent news, Nissan does not plan on slowing down EV battery production and in fact claims that the Nissan LEAF has had strong consecutive months of sales growth. Travis Parman, a Nissan spokesperson, claims that “the Renault-Nissan Alliance remains 100% committed to its industry-leading EV program.” He then went on to back up his claim by noting that the Nissan LEAF has been the best-selling electric vehicle in the United States for the last 18 consecutive months, it would be ridiculous to slow down its production.

Nissan Quick to Respond to Royal News

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014


Nissan’s marketing team was one of the first to respond to the news that broke out earlier this week. Prince William and wife, Kate announced that they are pregnant with their second child – as the world took a few minutes to let it soak in, Nissan got to work. Within seven minutes, Nissan Europe tweeted an image of the interior of their X-Trail vehicle, with a crown placed on each seat. Nissan claims that their X-trail model has room for the entire family. In fact, the message attached to the image stated, “It could be triplets and there would still be enough room for the Queen…” No room for arguing there – Nissan was one of the first brands to react to the news and for that their engagement activity has been off the charts.
